Fine craft relies heavily on natural elements and inspiration from the world around us. Members and crafters for The League of New Hampshire Craftsmen store in Keene create beauty from wood, fibers, found objects, and develop designs that have organic flair. It's no wonder that Keene store owner Taryn Fisher sees the resonance between her shop and the powerful local environmental movement.

At Thursday's mixer, you are welcome to drop in for conversations on our current climate crisis, and solutions your rural communities are implementing to make a difference, one policy, one activity, one purchasing choice at a time. There will be an interactive survey on the topic as well as art-making that celebrates your vision for a carbon neutral community.
